    My 5month progress

    So at the beginning of the yr I started working out again and here are my previous stats
    height 5'11
    Weight 150
    bf% 8-10
    chest 38.5 inches
    waist 30.5 inches
    quads 22.5 inches
    calves 15 inches
    arms 14.75 inches

    And thats how big I was back in jan. But now my stats are
    Height same
    weight 193
    bf% 10-12
    chest 47in
    waist 31.5
    quads 24in
    calves 15.75
    arms 17.75

    So thats my progress looks good to me but at the same time im having a hard time staying motivated. Any tips on how to want to keep going? Oh I forgot to add no I didnt use any gear just been eating quite a bit and training hard and if it matters my age is 20. And any tips are appreciated thanks.

    The key to staying motivated is to set goals. You're at 193 now so set a goal to hit 200 and give it a deadline. Make it acheivable but don't put it too far out.

    Revamp your diet and mix up your training a little bit. If you've hit a plateau more than likely you have hit the point in your bulking diet where the amount of calories you are taking in has now become your maintenance amount.

    Thats what ive figured but I find it hard enough to find time to eat a lot now, the onlt thing I can thin of doing is switching my protein shake with more of a gainer shake. Do you think thats a good idea?

    The extra calories wouldn't hurt. I'm not the best with diets tho I'd talk to twist or gbrice and see what they think.

    Even adding in just a few extra calories per meal would help

    No im not using creatine the only supplement I personally like are the nitric oxide products and the best one ive found is made by Gaspari. Ive been using it for a month and a half now and it works great. As for training I workout 6days a week i'll do something like chest,back,legs,arms,delts and traps, and abs each muscle getting its own day for training. And as for diet I cant say I have a set one because I cant stand eating the same thing all the time but I do eat right around 3500 calories a day. but if you want I can give you an idea of what I eat from day to day.

    For rear delts reverse flys with dumbels or reverse with cables, for lower chest decline bench or cable crossovers.

    honestly, i agree with setting goals. both short term and long term. short term goals are important, you can can set a goals as far out as you want, but you need to have something attainable in the semi near future. this has always helped me. once you start to see the gains coming and the goals being accomplished, it sets you off like a chain reaction.

    finding yourself a good training partner is also very beneficial, someone you can enjoy your training with, and who you can feed off one another. friendly competition is always helpful too
